Tackling New Challenges

20 Mar

This started out small enough.

“Wouldn’t it be nice to have a better website?” I said.

It was supposed to be easy.

“Oh, I can do this myself.”

And then,

“Hey look, I found a book about website design.”

But then it got complicated.

“I need to find an HTML editor?”

Which was followed by,

“What is PHP?”

Which was followed by,

“Where is my phone? I need to text my sister.”

And then it got easy again.


Thank goodness for sisters, especially ones that know about website design 🙂





Apartment Inspiration #4

21 Nov

Okay, there is my last thought on apartment decorating. Thanks for bearing with me.

What about decorating an apartment with bright colors, interesting abstract art, and silly things? I could definitely use some more whimsy in my science-driven life.

Okay, here is the inspiration:

This theme reminds me a lot of my sister, who is one of the most creative and fun people I’ve ever known. When we were kids, her bedroom was filled with hundreds of Pez dispensers and her cool acrylic paintings. I still have her paintings of an old guy smoking, a kitty “sleeping” on a rug, and Batman speaking in apostrophes hanging on our walls. What a playful source of inspiration!
